Are you thinking of starting your own business, interested in working for a high growth start-up or wanting to develop an entrepreneurial or innovative theme in your career? If so this Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management MSc has been designed to help you develop the specialist knowledge and capabilities that you will need in entrepreneurship and innovation.

You may be a recent or experienced graduate within the field of business and management looking to expand your entrepreneurial knowledge. Perhaps you have ambitions to start your business but want to learn from the leading academics and research in the field.
On this Entrepreneurship Management Masters, you will be a part of a diverse international cohort of students, giving you an invaluable opportunity to share experiences and discover new ideas with people from different cultural backgrounds whilst developing your cultural intelligence.
You will learn about the principles, theories and practices used by entrepreneurial and innovative organisations. This includes frameworks for reviewing, reflecting, analysing and critiquing your own entrepreneurial mindset, intentions and potential ventures.
During Northumbria's Postgraduate in Innovation Management you will be set entrepreneurship and innovation challenges to work on contemporary socio-economic problems identified in the local community, internationally and within the business community to achieve specified aims. You will learn how to work effectively within dynamic teams; how to adopt a design-ethos in problem solving; and how to lead entrepreneurially.
You will develop practical skills to promote creative thinking through practice-based elements in which real world problems are introduced for the testing of creative team-working techniques. Entrepreneurial skills will be combined with theory and an overview of the policy environment to equip you for a variety of employment options or for further research.
You will be prepared for employment in a variety of settings from self-employment, as part of a new venture, or as a motivated and valued entrepreneurial team member in a private business or public organisation.
Overall, the course aims to develop you as an entrepreneur and manager, with a clear understanding of the theory and practice of entrepreneurship and innovation and how to create new business ventures. The course is designed to maximise the focus on entrepreneurship, including the development of your capabilities for teamwork and decision making.
To further enhance your employability, we offer the opportunity to undertake a master’s consultancy project as an alternative to the traditional dissertation. You’ll work in a small group, typically no more than five people, and tackle a live project from a host organisation under the mentorship of a member of our academic team. The project can be an excellent vehicle for you to relate theory to practice while developing transferable skills.
This new programme is intended either to help you in your journey to setting up your own business, or to take a leadership role with an entrepreneurial organisation. If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.
